Bethany College will celebrate its Homecoming 2009 with four days of events from October 8-11. Highlights include a business career conference; a fall alumni awards dinner; a talent show with crowning of Homecoming royalty; an auction and a Homecoming football game versus Bethel College.

The public is invited to attend an auction at 4 p.m. for the Terrible Swedes Project designed by Dr. Richard Bergen ’53. Items will include: KU basketball tickets; K-State football tickets; vacation for two to a resort in Jackson Hole, Wyo.; Disneyworld family package; dinner for eight at the Red Barn Studio; Birger Sandzen original studio and gallery tour for eight; golf packages; and artwork by several local artists.
